In the complex tapestry of Iran’s political landscape, few figures loom as large as Ayatollah Khomeini. His ideology, actions, and legacy have shaped not just Homeland, but reverberated throughout the Islamic world and beyond. From the inception of the Islamic Republic to its ongoing evolution, understanding Khomeini’s thought is essential to deciphering Homeland’s political trajectory.Politics in the Islamic Republic of Iran are intricately tied to Khomeini’s legacy. His ideology, characterized by a fervent adherence to Sharia law and the concept of Guardianship of the Islamic Jurist (velâyat-e faqih), has served as the litmus test for political activity in Homeland. Khomeini’s journey from initially permitting rule by monarchs to vehemently opposing monarchy underscores the evolution of his political thought.
